RIM and Motorola submit revised nano-SIM card standard that is 80% Apple's design but the tray

0. phoneArena 18 May 2012, 04:40 posted on

RIM and Motorola, with Nokia conspicuously missing, submitted an overhauled design that incorporates 80% of what Apple wants, but adds a notch to the nano-SIM, which will allow users to pop it in and out by pushing, instead of requiring Apple's tray to insert. Whether this new design that combines the best of both worlds will be approved, however, remains to be decided on May 31, when ETSI will gather to vote again on the latest nano-SIM proposals...

Nokia's design is also not backwards compatible. I remember the massive uproar when Apple first started using MicroSIMS nevermind manufacturers using sim cards that are completely incompatible with the existing standard!

You can buy a 3rd party device that can be used with the current MicroSIM cards, such as the ones used in iphone 4/4S, and it will work with any other 4G/3G device.
